3:32 am
all of a sudden, there's a little bit of ink in the taste. we're going to get to "the bachelorette" and all the tea that was spilled there. but we're going to start with what's left of tropical storm emily, drenching parts of florida. as it heads back to sea. >> let's take a look at the radar. you can see the heavy rain south of ft. myers and moving east of florida. up to 8 inches of rain in some locations. 31 counties are still under a state of emergency. in some cases, triggering dramatic rescues. >> yeah. including these two brothers who were left clinging into a navigation light in tampa bay, after their fishing boat sank. in the meantime, to the west, a heat wave is fuelling wildfires in southern california, approaching all-time record highs in washington and oregon. accuweather's paul williams joins us. >> good morning, kendis. diane. emily will enter florida and strengthen back to tropical storm strength but will bring plenty of rain and thunderstorms throughout the region.
3:33 am
we expect emily out to sea. we are watching out for strong surf and strong rip currents from hilton head to myrtle beach all the way up to cape hatteras. not expect it to strengthen into hurricane strength but still causing problems. where we also have a problem, near record heat in the west. we have a retreating jet stream, near record heat, very warm throughout the west. scattered showers shifting to the east with the flash flood threat over portions of new mexico and into colorado. but that record heat's going to be a big problem for the pacific northwest. kendis, diane? >> paul, thank you. and now we turn to some big changes in president trump's inner circle. following a dramatic resignation of yet another top white house aide. >> the white house communications director, anthony scaramucci is out. he's gone just days after joining the administration. his brief tenure came to an abrupt end as retired general john kelly was sworn in as chief of staff to replace reince priebus. priebus stepped down on friday after scaramucci railed against
3:34 am
him to a reporter in a profanity-laced rant. >> look, the president certainly felt that anthony's comments were inappropriate for a person in that position. and he didn't want to burden general kelly, also, with that line of succession. as i think we've made clear a few times over the course of the last couple days to several of you individually, but general kelly has the full authority to operate within the white house and all staff will report to him. >> and she mentioned everyone in the white house will report to kelly, including the president's daughter ivanka and their son-in-law jared kushner. >> the president ended the day with these words, tweeting, a great day at the white house. >> i would hate to see a bad day at the white house. very busy day there. so scaramucci released a statement saying he felt it best to give the chief of staff a clean slate. >> sounds familiar. sources say that he was escorted from the white house grounds and abc news political director rick
3:35 am
klein joins us with a little insight on this. rick, good morning. >> diane and kendis, the mooch era is no more at the white house, as the trump administration copes with the latest in a series of devastating blows, staff turmoil that has almost no precedent in modern times. he is now -- scaramucci is now the third top official in just the past week and a half to leave. that includes, of course, two communications directors. we are told that the conduct that scaramucci showed in an interview he gave to "the new yorker" that included colorful language and quotes about his colleagues, combined with the fact that he reported directly to the president did not sit well with the brand new chief of staff john kelly. and therefore one of the first acts under john kelly is accepting the resignation of scaramucci. it leaves the white house in further chaos, but, you know, it may be the kind of chaos that suggests order down the road. the rarest of kinds. if john kelly can show this is the way his white house operates and if there isn't room for the kind of freelancing that scaramucci might been expected
3:36 am
for, that might show a new era in the white house. that is exactly what trump's allies are counting on. >> our thanks to rick klein there. it's been a busy seven months indeed. now the white house is defending the president's recent comments to police officers in new york. the president told the officers they shouldn't be too nice when arresting suspects. now critics say the president is encouraging police brutality. but his press secretary says the remarks should not be taken seriously. >> i believe he was making a joke at the time. >> you heard her there, saying she believes that he was making a joke. police chiefs across the country condemn the president's comments. they say he's sending the wrong message as they try to improve relations with the communities they serve. in arizona a man who called himself america's toughest sheriff is now facing a jail sentence. joe arpaio was found guilty for continuing to conduct immigration sweeps after being ordered to stop.
